Challenge #20--K.I.S.S.--Keep It Simple Stamper

Good day everyone!! Before I jump into the challenge for this month I need to take care of some things. The first matter of business is to say goodbye to some our dear Design Team Members who are leaving us. Zoe, Melanie, and Elaine are all stepping down from our team. We want to wish them well and thank them for the effort, time, talent, and love they each put into our team and into every project they did for SWC. We will miss you ladies and hope you will keep in touch!!

And now, the moment you have all been waiting for…(drum roll please), our DT Call is now closed! A HUGE thank you to ALL of you who took the time to submit your projects!! We have chosen 10 wonderful, new full-time Design Team members who will introduce themselves to you throughout this month. Sorry, that’s all I can say, you will just have to wait until they post to find out who they are (hee hee). Rather than do a huge long post to introduce them all at once, we thought it might be nice for them to have their own time in the spotlight.

Crissy was also so impressed with the number of entries and effort put out that she has also chosen to highlight 10 Special Guest Designers from the call who will be sharing their talents with us for a one time post. We will be featuring these lovely ladies, 2 in one month, from September thru January so stay tuned...

Now on to the challenge!! This month we want to give you a great big K.I.S.S. , not literally (hee hee), but a challenge in which you "Keep It Simple Stamper".
For some of you out there I know keeping it simple is a REAL challenge, but for this one you will have to try, LOL!! Of course, this challenge is open to your interpretation, as always, but for those who are challenged with "simple" here are some ideas...use one designer paper only, one or one type of embellishement, a simple layout, etc. You get the idea...

So here's what I did using a merged image of Crissy's digi stamps "Whatzup Dog" and "Party Time Accessories".

You can check out the details of my card on my personal blog at Sally Cicada Designs.

Now it's your turn to give us a K.I.S.S.!! Show us your simple cards!! See upload instructions below!! There will be five free digi's given to one lucky challenge participant who will be chosen by at the end of the month! You may now use images from any company and still be included in the draw for the blog candy prize! Those who use one of Crissy's images, either from her rubber or digital collections will be entered twice in the draw. But please respect the rule of no more than three entries per month. Otherwise your entries could be deleted.

PLEASE NOTE: This month's contest winner as well as our picks for the the Artist's Choice Awards will be announced later on in the week. I know, I know, more suspense...LOL.


You should see a blue froggy face button below where you can click to add a link to your creation. Just click on it and follow the instructions that will pop up. If you don't see it because you are on the main blog page, just go to the top of this post and click on the post title to go to the individual post. It will show up (or it should) then. Please remember, no more than three entries! You have 'til August 31st at noon to play! And you will be entered into the draw for the digi prize no matter what image you use!! Be sure to come back all throughout the month to see what our talented design team has come up with to inspire you and to see who our NEW DESIGNERS are!!

☺☺ Many Blessings ☺☺
